Currie Antirock

I have really been thinking about going with the Currie Antirock for my 2010 JKU. Just curious how much difference there is between it and the original swaybar in normal daily driving. The idea of not having to climb under my jeep to reconnect the swaybar when its got a inch of mud on it, is at minimum something to think about.

I noticed there is a lot of roll when turning and going over bumps. It was to the point where the ride wasn’t enjoyable anymore. I bought this only because I have the Falcon adjustable shocks so I just adjusted them to a stiffer setting and it feels like I still have the stock swaybar or at least very close.

I would never get a Currie Antirock for a daily driven Jeep. To get the Antirock flexy enough to be good for rock crawling, it's way less than adequate on road. And if you're going to make it near stock stiffness for on road, what's the point because it won't flex off road and you'll be disconnecting it.

With a stock swaybar and a lift, my JK leans around corners on road bad enough as it is. If I was going to swap out the swaybar I'd go with something stiffer to reduce lean more on road and then have disconnects for when I get to the trail.

The Antirock is really only good for a dedicated off road rig where you want to have some limit to articulation. I've seen custom long travel suspension rigs that lean badly sitting on flat ground. Adding a Currie Antirock gets them to sit level on flat ground and still lets them flex out on the rocks.

I have Antirock front and back with a 3.5 AEV lift and Falken Wildpeak AT3W in 285/75R17 E load range.

My Jeep drives way better than stock on the road and flexes plenty off road. I do have a little more body roll than stock, but it does not feel bad even at speed - nowhere near having the stock sway bar disconnected.

I guess there is a lot more to it than just Antirock. I too heard that it was awful on the stock setup.

I went from the AEV 2.5 to Currie 4" with Antirock. Yea I can't take corners like I used to but the ride is night and day difference.

I run the Antirock on my JK 2dr. 38” tires, 4.5” lift and fully armored. A heavy girl indeed she is. I have ZERO regrets with the decision to purchase this. On road handling FOR ME is acceptable. I do notice a little more lean but certainly not a night and day difference. If anything, it took a little harshness out of the suspension when hitting bumps with one tire. I do some highway and a lot of street driving but my Jeep is not my DD.

BTW.... it works great off road and adds some stability when in off camber situations because it doesn’t allow the body to just flop over like when it’s disconnected. FOR ME it was a very nice upgrade I am glad I did.

Agree 100%. My Jeep is a lightweight (aluminum armour and bumpers from when I wheeled it stock height). My wife described the reduction in harshness as "springier" - the Antirock seems to smooth things out even on a crappy highway surfaces..

Everyone I know runs the Currie- they all say the body roll is worse but they're ok with it. For me that's not good enough. Not spending that much $$$ to have my daily driver pitchy- and for awhile I was rock crawling every weekend. I also installed a Rubi e-disco on my Sport early on too. Finicky pain in the butt. And guess what? I still do it the old fashioned way. While my tires are airing down I disconnect. No biggie. I keep a rubber mallet, gloves and a smallish crow bar on the back of my Bartact seat cover. Easy peasy. (and I have quick disconnects.)
The only time it's mattered is for random occasions where I find a dirt road and want to tool around. Most of the time I have a destination in mind that involves rocks and it's an all day thing.
We don't have mud in Southern California- that might be a bigger factor for you. My husband bought me an AntiRock years ago and I made him send it back. No regrets.

I don't mind the extra roll I get on road. My issue is it's limiting my flex quite a bit. Your post makes it seem like there's a way to adjust it to get more flex. Is that true from your experience? I'm at the point where I disconnect if I'm hitting harder trails.

You adjust it by getting a thicker/thinner bar and/or changing the length of the arms.

It's what you do when you spec the bar when you buy it.

I didn't mean to imply you could dial in more or less sway control once it's installed.

After considering manual front disconnects, I decided to go with the Currie Antirock instead. I noticed a slight bit more of a roll on the street the first day or two but quickly got used to it and don't even think about it any more.

Beats the hell out of crawling around on the ground dealing with the swaybar every time I go off road.

I see. When I ordered mine from NR4X4 I didn't realize that was even an option. I'll look at getting longer arms.

Thanks!

That may or may not be an option. It depends on what kind of clearance you have. Longer arms may push the links into the coil spring. They may also cause the links to be aligned weird which can cause other problems.

You may want to see about getting a softer rate bar.

Okay cool. I'll definitely look into it. Thanks for the info.

I’m running from/back antirock........I didn’t run stock for long so I’m used to it. I would call it more floaty but not big deal, works well on the trails

After install I noticed a difference for about 5 minutes but no longer notice any change. Perhaps those who get a lot of body roll is because they did not load the torsion bar correctly. The instructions for loading could be a little more clear.

no more getting down in the dirt, mud, snow or ice anymore! No longer need hammer, pry bar, gloves or anything else; air down and start crawling.
